Free COVID-19 community testing program for residents underway
WAILUKU — Mayor Michael Victorino last week announced the launch of a free COVID-19 community testing program sponsored by the County of Maui.
Residents do not need to have insurance or meet any criteria to get tested for free. Minit Medical is administering the program at standing community testing sites in West, South and Central Maui. Community testing drives in other locations will be announced in the future.
All participants must pre-register by visiting www.minitmed.com/pre-register-maui-covid-19. If you have any problem pre-registering, call 667-6161, extension 7, for help and more information.
“The county is offering these tests completely free to keep our community safe and healthy,” Victorino said. “You don’t need to have any symptoms, and it’s a very quick and easy testing program that we encourage everyone to participate in.”
The free testing at the community testing sites DO NOT qualify for the State Pre-Travel Testing Program.
Pre-register at one of the following locations:
• Lahaina/West Maui – 305 Keawe St. (temporary site located in parking lot), open every Monday and Thursday in November from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.;
• Kihei/Wailea – 1280 South Kihei Road (behind Ace Hardware), open every Tuesday and Friday in November from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.;
• Kahului – 348 Lehuakona St. (behind Maui Marketplace), open every Wednesday and Saturday in November from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
